Gain Robust Dividends By Investing in Constructive Criticism II
In the previous post, I opened the vault of eternal knowledge and enlightened you loyal readers on the value of constructive criticism. Those who took the advice to heart may already be profiting from the insights. You’ll be glad to know that this installment is serving another course of wisdom for your professional pleasure. If you haven’t already consumed the earlier morsels of knowledge, be sure to have a look. If you have, it’s time for your graduate course.
Ask the Right Question. Alright, you’ve managed to gain the undivided attention of a cohort who’s ready to offer the finest in constructive criticism. Now it’s time to pry loose some info. One great way is by asking open-ended questions in order to get a more detailed picture of your problem zones. For example, “What do you think I should do when I feel an urge to interrupt our monthly meeting with my latest Karaoke triumph?”
Pause to Ponder. Sometimes constructive criticism can hit you like an avalanche of info, especially if you’ve polled dozens of critics. This is where you want to downshift to a more manageable pace so you have time to absorb all the valuable feedback. Pick key intervals and take time to ponder the info that’s just been tossed in your direction. And be sure to zero in on choice times to implement the newly-gained insights in an actual professional setting.
Exude Gratitude. Your critics have just enlightened you with feedback that could improve your professional and personal well-being by leaps and bounds. Before you jump back into the trenches bolstered by their info, be sure to show your appreciation with the magic words everyone loves to hear – “You’ve just won the lotto jackpot.” Just so you know, the words ‘thank you’ also work.
